Just Wanted To Say...

The Prima Forever Green collection at FotoBella offers some great options for card designs, and masculine is one of them.    

I chose the "you're my everything" sentiment, matted it in white card stock and popped it up from the back ground so that I could place some fun raffia behind it.  I fussy cut some ferns a tucked those behind the sentiment as well.  I could't resist adding a little bit of bling, so I added two rhinestone gems on either side, mixed in with the raffia.  It was just the right touch.

Simple yet beautiful and a great card for the man in your life.

Hello Grand Canyon layout

What amazing places did you visit this Summer?  We recently visited the Grand Canyon and wow, what a beautiful experience.  Here is one of many awesome photos from our trip.  Prima's Forever Green collection was the perfect match to this photo.  I didn't want to do too much to detract from the awesome photo.  I  chose the papers and colors carefully.  

The "hello" is from the journal cards pad in the collection, along with the pink and orange card stock. I mirrored the "hello" cards to emulate the endlessness feeling of the Grand Canyon and the continue echoes that ring through it.

The mason jar journal card I fussy cut, along with the butterflies and placed them on the page to appear as though they are escaping from the jar and into the Grand Canyon.  

I have a ton of photos from our trip and great memories to preserve using the beautiful Prima collection from FotoBella.

Explore with Prima

Hello there!  I've been quite busy with one of FotoBella's latest bundles, Prima's Forever Green.  It's has a beautiful nature theme and made me anxious to scrap some of our latest vacation photos.   School is back in full swing, but we managed to squeeze in one last vacation.  The Grand Canyon!  It was an amazing experience to say the least.  This layout has just a glimpse of what we saw.  We took a ton of photos, but this was a fun selfie I took of me and my baby girl.

Prima always delivers when it comes to fabulous embellishments.  This collection is no different.

Tags, butterflies, flowers, leaves, and ephemera are all on this layout.  It was a lot of fun sorting through all the goodies.

To get all of these fun elements, The Prima Forever Green bundle is what you need.  Go to and get your hands on it quick so you can start creating!

You Are Loved Layout

Once I got started creating with this fabulous collection I couldn't stop!  Which one is that you ask?  My Mind's Eye, Jubilee!  It's fantastic.  Really.  Fantastic.

Now ask me if I like taking selfies and I'll say heck no!  To my surprise when I was digging through my photos, I found these selfies I took back when my son was around a year old...2009/2010.  Were they called selfie's then? lol.  And was it that trendy?  I really don't know but these one's are pretty cute.

Back to Jubilee, look at these fun embellishments.  Gold letters, enamel dots, the bicycle, it's all sooo cute!  

And then there's the pennants, I always love those!

Have a fabulous day!

That Was Fun Layout

Hey there, it's Apryl with FotoBella's Design Team.  One of the newest bundles at FotoBella is My Mind's Eye Jubilee.  Have you seen it yet?  Well, here's one of the layouts I'm featuring using the Jubilee bundle.  

The fun arrow patterns and polka dots are bright and festive, perfect for birthday photos and ice cream sundaes at Farrell's!  The Jubilee Collection is yummy enough to eat also.  

Love the chipboard stickers and how they really pop against the dark red card stock.

And the arrows, one of my favorite patterned papers in this collection.  What will your favorite be?  Stop by and see!

Have a fabulous day!

Unique Gift Box

Hello there!  Today I'm here to share a gift box that I made for FotoBella Design Team.

I saw this diagram that was posted by Scrappin' Escapes on Facebook and it was done with a paper plate.  I thought why a paper plate when I have all these beautiful  papers to play with that would make a great gift box.

The FotoBella bundle I'm using is Basic Grey's Grand Bazaar.  

Have a fabulous day!
